Posted on July 29, 2014.













An avatar is a photo or a digital image that represents a user.Your avatar appears throughout Blackboard, including the portal where you log in, the modules within your courses, and within journal and blog entries. Adding a photo of yourself allows your students to get acquainted with you before the semester starts. I would also encourage your students to add avatar pictures as well to familiarize yourself with your students The tutorial below will show you how to add an avatar image and where the avatar displays within the system.
